Aluminium and Brass Brutalist Style Tray by David Marshall (Circa 1970s)
Very large aluminium and brass brutalist tray by David Marshall. This piece is elegantly rugged, beautifully trodden and irregularly formed. It looks like it's had a rough life and therein lies its beauty. Raw, brutal and beautiful. Maker's mark appears on leather base piece and in brass handle. The tray is in very good vintage condition with characterful wear marks consistent with its fabrication, age and usage.
